    So I took this job a year ago and pledged to myself I'd stay for at least 2 years. I currently have what I consider to be too many job changes in recent history.

    Then this summer the owner of the aircraft I fly got in to a pissing match with the management company and they gave him the boot. I personally enjoy flying the owner and the crew I work with. We all decided to stay together and move with the plane to the new management company.

    Nothing has changed for the most part. Plane parks I think the same spot. Plane is the same. Crew is the same. But the 135 certificate is different.

    If I didn't have so many jobs on my resume already then I'd have no issue with listing both management companies on the resume and on airline apps. If you count the new management company I will now have 4 separate places since 2014.

    Currently my resume lists the actual aircraft with no mention of the management company.

    I don't want to get in to a situation where I get the phone call from a "dream destination" but then when I hand them PRIA paperwork there's 2 different 135 companies but only 1 job listed on the resume.

    Staying with the owner/airplane sounds like a logical reason enough to have two companies listed for the same airplane.

    Who were you actually employed by?

    Depends on who you ask.

    Its a weird situation to be in. I could tell the chief pilot that I did something rude with his mother to his face, but if he tried to fire me then the owner of the aircraft would go ballistic because we're "his guys." My paycheck says the management company, but the guy who provides the cash is the owner.

    So then it's a typical business aviation relationship. You were employed by the management company. They had a contact with you, I'll bet, and directly paid you.

    Anybody in aviation that's ever dealt with management companies will understand why you have 2 companies listed. Just explain it to the interviewer if asked.

    I don't think company hopping is an issue right now. Lots of people moving on to the next thing. I don't think any company would look down on that on a resume.

    What baldy said.

    Put down where your paycheck came from and explain it in the interview.

    I've been at the same "job" for 8 years, for 6 different employers, par for the course in the US.

    I've been working on the same airplanes for 7 years for 2 different DBAs, 4 different holding companies, and at least 3 job titles...
